I am a qualified counsellor and psychotherapist in the City of London (EC4). I help my clients cope with acute crisis and move towards a more integrated, fulfilled way of living.

You may be experiencing particular difficulties right now, in yourself or with others, or you may have a general sense of something being not right. You want things to shift. I offer safe and confidential support to work with you in this process.

My approach is integrative relational. I draw on evidence based therapeutic principles according to your needs. You will have space to explore your difficulties in a safe setting and we will work together to understand what is troubling you and how you can move forward.

Issues I can help with

Some of the issues I work with:

  • Depression
  • Anxiety
  • Trauma
  • Chronic shame
  • Insomnia
  • Stress/ tension
  • Relationships
  • Sexuality
  • Loneliness
  • Bereavement and Loss
  • Life transitions
  • Creativity/ desire for change
My therapy practice is LGBTQ+ affirmative (Lesbian, gay, transgender, queer/questioning) as well as neurodiversity/ Asperger’s/ ASD aware and affirmative.

Therapeutic approach

  • Integrative and evidence based
  • Relational
  • Brief psychodynamic
  • Somatosensory/ embodied

My therapeutic approach integrates principles from several therapeutic backgrounds to best suit each client’s needs.

Psychotherapy support can be life changing in the short and long term. Counselling and psychotherapy can help you more freely choose behaviour and effect change in your life right now, before accruing years of therapy. 

I have a strong awareness of the role of trauma, including
micro-traumatic events, in shaping dysfunctional patterns in life, work,
and relationships. Therapy does not need to unearth all details of the trauma to be healing. It does offer space to talk about aspects of your experience you cannot share with anyone else.

Therapy is a two-person endeavour, so from the first session I will help you discover and more fully tap into your own existing resources.
